The European Parliament recommended granting Ukraine the status of a candidate for membership in the European Union.

This is stated in the resolution on the foreign policy and security and defense policy of the EU “after Russia’s aggressive war against Ukraine”, adopted by MEPs at a plenary meeting in Strasbourg on Wednesday, June 8, writes  DW .

438 parliamentarians voted in favor of the resolution, 65 voted against, 94 more abstained.

The European Parliament recommended that the Council of the EU agree that “the Versailles Declaration recognizes Ukraine’s European aspirations and its application for EU membership, and grants it EU candidate status as a clear political signal of solidarity with the people of Ukraine.”

We are talking about the declaration of the informal EU summit in Versailles. She, however, was very careful in her wording, recognized only the European aspirations of Ukraine and added that the country is part of the European family of peoples.

The decision of the European Council is expected at the summit on June 23-24.

As UNIAN reported, on February 28, Zelensky signed an application for  Ukraine’s membership in the European Union .

On March 18, Zelensky, following a conversation with the President of the European Commission, announced that  the EC conclusion on the application for membership  would be prepared within a few months.
